Default wheels/Tire size for 5-spokes on a "96 to '99

Is anybody running 00+ 5-spokes on a '92-'99? (not swirlies, the bent 5)

They look to be 5 X 115, and 17 X 7 1/2. Stock tire size 235/50/17 (I think).

Any issues with the offset, or clearance on a ''96-'99?

I have an easy local deal for some, But I need to move on it, if I'm going to do it..

Thanks.

I believe they should be fine if they are stock tire size. I know many people run the other 17" rims from the 00+ on the 92-99 without issues.

Charlie.. should be the same size etc as the swoopies I'm running. They'll look good too.

No issues, except you'll be too cool for the rest of the locals.

I have run the bent 5 spokes from a 2002 on a 97 & a 98, no problem with fit.

I've seen the bent five spokes and they look insane on that body style.

Thanks for the responses, i was out of town for a couple of days.

I could go with either the 5 spoke or swoops, a deal on the 5s showed up first. Have to get over to that guy'* house, and make sure he didn't do something foolish, like sell them.
